We have released a new version of our WordPress Membership Plugin wp-Member. This latest version includes many minor and major bugfixes. It has been extensively tested with wordpress 3.0. If you experience any issues, please contact our support team by clicking on the support link at the top of every page of our website.

we are presently running a battery of tests with the latest stable release of wordpress 3.0. Over the past few weeks and months we have been testing wp-member v3.0 with the beta releases of wordpress v3.0 so that when the stable version of wordpress 3.0 was released, we could again run tests. This is because the stable release of wordpress will have changes in it that were not in beta releases. As such we are unable to test our plugin against these changes until they have made the stable release.
As a rule of thumb, most blog owners will not immediately upgrade to a wordpress stable release. This is because while it is classified as “stable”, it will have many bugs that will be found and fixed within the first two weeks. You can see this with any new release of a wordpress version, within a few weeks a secondary release will be made to fix the bugs in the initial release.
Leaving this period of time before updating not only ensures that you are using the best version of wordpress, it also gives plugin developers a chance to ensure they have ironed out any issues with their plugin. Some plugins as yet have not been tested with the latest version, others that have been tested with the latest version and updated, will likely need to be updated once again when the next bug fix version of wordpress is released.
For the time being, we are advising clients to use wordpress v2.9.2 along with wp-member v3.0.beta4 as these two versions have been extensively tested together. Shortly, we will be releasing wp-Member v3.0 as soon as we have completed testing and altering it to work seamlessly with the latest stable version of wordpress as well as the upcoming bugfix release of wordpress.
It is not uncommon to find that WordPress is the favourite content management system used on the internet today.

A major advantage of WordPress sites is that you are not limited to RSS feed subscriptions only! There is an array of options available to suit the most discriminating webmaster’s requirements.

You only need to select the membership level for posts, categories and pages and WP-Member will by design deal with access rights, payments, and subscriptions of members.
It would be wrong not to recognize RSS as the most popular option, and is commonly found on almost all blogs, websites, and especially media related websites on the internet. What is significant with subscription WordPress sites is that you are not limited to only the blogs on a website but members can subscribe to blogs or sites by using tags or even different categories.
You can make use of two easy ways. Permalinks are the easiest way to do this. It is as simple as adding “add/feed” at the end of an URL to get a feed. In the event where Permalinks are not made possible, it is just as simple. Then you only need to add “&feed=rss2” to the URL.
This is what makes creating subscription to WordPress so astonishing. You can turn almost any content into feeds! All you need to do is to affix the feed value to the applicable URL.
The following tips will assist you to create subscription WordPress sites easy and uncomplicated as well as customized to your needs and requirements.
